"If Salt Lake County is able to follow its new master plan, arts lovers could see cultural hubs in the suburbs, upgrades to beloved amphitheaters from Murray to Draper, the reincarnation of a defunct sugar factory in West Jordan and a film center in the capital's downtown."
"On Tuesday, the County Council unanimously agreed to "accept" the $300,000 blueprint that will guide the multimillion-dollar development and use of arts venues for decades to come."
"Prepared by AMS Planning & Research's California office, the master plan provides an inventory of 130 existing cultural facilities, which the county plans to make available online. The study also recommends the county consider helping 16 potential projects to join the lineup, although all proposals are welcome to apply for county funds."
"...[T]he study envisions three suburban regional cultural centers, similar in size to Salt Lake City's Rose Wagner Center, four amphitheater upgrades, a renovation of Magna's historic Empress Theatre and a transformation of West Jordan's defunct sugar factory into an arts center."
